Tasmanian Waterways in black and white

Shared by

From rivers to lakes and wild beaches, the waterways of Tasmania do their best to inspire and refresh those who visit them.

And while it is easy to unwind relaxing on a riverbank in the afternoon sun, the same isn’t always true when it comes to photographing these places.

The Hobart Photographic Society Mono group is currently exhibiting a series of works in black and white that attempt to recreate these priceless moments, while also presenting its own unique interpretations of the natural environment.

In addition to water-based photos, the exhibition will also take a closer look at the many eco-systems that are supported by these waterways and the wildlife that lives alongside our coastlines and inland rivers.

Featuring works from a range of artists, including Ian Robertson, the event aims to not only inspire people with the rich tapestry of images but also generate greater appreciation for the importance of water for our survival.

In this way, the artists manage to share their own love of the outdoors in all its beauty, while also helping to educate visitors about environmental issues.

Tasmanian Waterways is currently on show at Salamanca Place and the exhibition will come to a close on July 22.
